Improve Your Health by Visiting a Dental Office in Santa Cruz

Dental OfficeWhen you visit our dental office in Santa Cruz you are either coming in to see us for a regularly scheduled appointment that we use to offset any potential problems or you are probably coming in with a dental situation that requires our attention. With the advent of the internet, we have found that more and more of our patients are coming in with an increased amount of knowledge about what we do and how they can make their oral hygiene better. While patients can receive the information they need online, there is the danger of finding false facts online.

Oftentimes, patients come in having researched some condition with major concerns that have no effect on them directly. There are sources online that have no direct connection to you or to our dental office. Reading general information is good for things like oral hygiene but when you have something, in particular, you are best off coming in to see us.

High quality oral health

As a dental office, we have one clear directive, to ensure that each patient has strong oral. To accomplish this, we focus a lot of our attention and offer education on, preventative medicine. This involves teaching patients how to maintain teeth in a manner that prevents disease and keeps the gums and teeth healthy. Our website is one of the tools we use to ensure that patients get this kind of information directly from the source.

While our website is a source of information, we also recommend that people give our office a call if they have any questions. There is nothing as personal as getting medical and dental information directly from one's dentist. We understand our patients' medical history and can help treat any issues before they get worse.

A source of information

As a dental office in Santa Cruz, we will continue to provide patients with helpful information online. Patients may know some of the information, but we can provide more details to help patients familiarize with what is happening to their teeth. For example, a lot of people know that cavities are due to bacteria in the mouth and that the best way to remove the threat of cavities is to keep the teeth clean. Bacteria live naturally in the human mouth, and, for the most part, is fully harmless.

However, when you do not clean your mouth sufficiently, the bacteria builds up on the teeth in a formation known as plaque. This plaque secretes acids, which wears down the enamel on the teeth and eventually leads to cavities. Knowing this, you can be better prepared to fight cavities by maintaining good habits and eating a diet that is low in acid, starch and sugar. As always, we encourage you to call our office at (831) 580-1141 with questions.
